Welcome to the Meadow View Elementary School Music Page!  Click on the "calendar" link to see dates of upcoming cultural arts field trips and MVES music performances!  The students and I have been busily making music and memories together! Below are some of the things we are learning.

  • Kindergarten students have been exploring dynamics and tempo.  


  • 1st grade students are working on their musical "Seussical Jr."  They will be performing their show on February 28th at 2:00 for the school and at 6:30 for their family.  If your child has a speaking part please practice with them at home. 


  • 2nd grade students have learned that a melody is made up of different pitches, and a melody can go higher, lower, and sometimes even stay on the same pitch.  We have been  exploring the pitches mi, sol, and la. This month we also learned to compose rhythms using different types of pie as inspiration.     


  • 3rd grade students are beginning a unit on the major scale.  Ask them if they can sing the "Do Re Mi" song from The Sound of Music!



  • 4th grade will be studying rhythm and how it connects to math and fractions. We will also be playing xylophones, metallophones, glockenspiels, and other percussion instruments in class as we learn to sing "Canoe Song" and "Hammer Ring." Students will be using this information as they learn to play the recorders in February. 


  • 5th grade students will be learning to sing in cannon, create their own body percussion accompaniment, and play an Orff Orchestration accompaniment to folk songs.  We will also be studying rhythm and how it connects to math.
